Costas said on a different show that young men cannot own guns without bad things happening. Would anyone care to disagree with that?

Sure would-my 20 year old grandson has been hunting since he was 11. He's always had guns. He's never shot anyone. My 13 and 11 year old grandsons are already hunting and have their own guns. The problem isn't the gun.

Yes. Young men can, in fact, own guns responsibly. Every 20-something who owns a weapon doesn't commit murder. Not even a large percentage of them do. To say otherwise is like saying all Muslims are terrorists just because Osama bin Laden was both. Or that all gays are child molesters just because Ottis Toole was both.

Young men who do not understand the sanctity of human life, who are taught that society is to blame for their problems, who believe that any bad thing that happens to them is the result of white racism, who are brought up to idolize criminals, drug dealers, and thugs, who are told that working for a living is selling out to "the man", THEY should probably not own guns, but who's going to make THAT determination?

I would. At 22 one of my pieces of job related equipment was an S&W .357. I've owned guns since I was 12, and got a .22 rifle for my 12th birthday, and 20 gauge shotgun when I was 16.

Costas says that because he lives in a bubble. This is why so many celebrities lose their minds as he obviously has.

When you're in a hole, stop digging. Last night NBC sportscaster Bob Costas made an appearance on the O'Reilly Fact in an effort to clear up any "misunderstanding" about what he said during his anti-gun monologue on Sunday night football in reaction to NFL player Jovan Belcher killing the mother of his child. Yesterday, Costas issued a non-apology for his comments that was full of excuses and one that blamed viewers for misinterpreting what he really meant and said.

"I don't back up on anything I said."
